yet another "Simple Supper" success!

I made "Red Lentil Soup with Greens" for dinner tonight -- another recipe from Moosewood Restaurant Simple Suppers. It was FANTASTIC!

I, of course, made a few teensie changes to the original recipe, (like using a whole can of coconut milk instead of 3/4 cup, adding a ton more spinach, adding onions and potatoes, and doubling the amount of chili flakes called for,) and the end result was amazing! Delicious and rich without being heavy, and chock-full of nutrients (and plenty of garlic and ginger, which will help Dan -- he seems to have a small cold.) Yum!

On the side, we enjoyed a few Artisan Bread rolls:

There were twice as many . . . but we had already eaten two by the time I decided to snap a photo! Mmmmmmm fresh bread!

OMG. That soup looks divine! I had red lentil soup with squash last night and debated about adding spinach, but wasn't sure how it would be. Now I know!

Oh no--poor Dan! Did he ever get better from the last time he was sick?!
